Maybe Wendy will come through on day 2
76. Nice pics.

I was thinking during the week that 87 would seem super close or distant after this weekend. Skiing slalom well certainly makes that number seem close for Shiffy.

Not ‘22-‘23 close, but ‘23-‘24 close.

Hanna Aronsson Elfman (2002) showed class today and at this point she’s a much better skier than her FIS rank. Very calm, composed in an almost Stenmarkish way. 9 yesterday and 11 today. But the biggest for me was Cornelia Öhlund (2005) showing some of her nice attacking spirit, ending up 22nd in her first WC weekend, got a brief sit in the leader chair. Very 17, fun, bubbly OMG! Future looks good. Hector 5th, I think she benefitted from the wide swings, her GS skills came in handy there. ASL seems to be back. I hope she will be the one to challenge Mikaela this season. Had a great pre season in Chile. 2nd yesterday, a little unlucky today whith a classic inside right after she went into the steep. Great weekend and hat off to Levi for the prepp. It is so nice to see racing in these conditions.
Mikaela has a small herd now. Didn’t hear what today’s win was going to be named, or if she went with Sunshines suggestion yesterday: Angelina Jolie

Wendy came so close today - corker of a second run, only beaten by MS.

So who knows? Maybe Holdener has a great season - and a win - ahead of her. Let's hope so, she's deserving.

Both Ava Sunshine Jemison and Katie Hensien in the points. Laurence Saint-Germain also had a great day - perhaps she's finding speed again.
I'm sooooo rooting for Wendy to finally win a slalom. As it is, I think she holds the record for most runner-up spots in one event without a single win.

I am rooting for her to win a slalom also - just not in the short term.
Everything is zero sum. So hope she gets that win after Shiffy is at 87 wins.
Wendy seems like such a good egg.

Finally nailed it!
Even though Shiffrin was my pick for number one, I think I was rooting for Wendy! That was an amazing second run for both ladies!
Gotta hope Moltzan makes it happen soon, she was having a more than respectable 2nd run.
Ljutic has some chops!!!
